The launch, the jump and the gap @ PCP....

The Encore riders

7.30a.m got a call from Rudy telling Kay said Bukit Cermin area is raining and will be in wet condition...called Ober to spread the news...as for Syawal he can't make it due working...after small discussion through phone with Rudy and Ober...we decided to changed the venue to PCP...I remember Ayman said he also wanna come to Bukit Cermin so I SMS-ed him telling to come to PCP...

I was 1st to arrived since I'm the close one...8.20a.m...later Rudy then Ober..Achong arrived after that...they have "roti canai" for breakfast at nearby shop...Ayman called asking for some direction to PCP...we moved to parked our car and setup our bike around 9.45a.m...climbing from back as usual direct to the DH trail...Ayman arrived....we start ride around 10a.m...the 1st round from the top the last ending of the trail....

So I'm riding the X4 flyer...this is the 1st test ride off road using this frame...seriously very different in term of controlling and handling it...totally different than the Da Bomb Tora Bora frame...suddenly make me ride slower as I tried to make myself comfy with it....so I just rolling down all the way with small jump...I felt totally awkward...maybe this is the 1st time riding it..."tak serasi lagik kot"...

The rider..the machine and the helmet pinjam
As we pushed back up our bike...we stopped at the gap jump section...Ben was there...he said he just crashed himself...but no major injuries...there was 17 feet and 5 feet to choose...I myself like eager to try it...without wearing any protection pad....I tried the big 17 feet launch gap instead of the smaller one on the right side...so for that...I got myself a battle scar...officially by PCP...my left leg slipped away and hit the pedal...but I didn't crashed...managed to take control after landing...trs jd "bahan" ngan bebudak including Ben...hahaha..

PCP trademark
Nurse Achong patching my leg...
We continue climbed up...resting at the Gazebo...I went back to my car to take the first aid kit box...Achong help washed the blood and I put plaster on it...the scar is small but it's a deep cut...the blood continued flow out but I just like ignoring it...then I wear the knee/shin pad...coz later I will try again to jump at the gap section....

After a few run on the middle section that consist table top and berm...we decided to go back to the gap jump section...Duan join us there...Rudy ready to sniped with his camera...so at 1st we try the 5 feet gap...Rudy's snipping all the action...then I again tried the 17 feet gap...my landing still not so good...need more speed to clear it...well I'm a beginner...:)..my hand still shivering and trembling after make the jump after jump....but I still wanna do it...

The 5 feet and 17 feet gap jump
had a nice clearance at 5 feet gap Ober Anti Gravity clear 5 feet gap jumpAchong clear the 5 feet gap..see no glove...hikmat kebal tapak tangan buddha..I tried the 17 feet gap jump...not enough speed
Before we wanna go back...Rudy said he wanna try to jump also...from the beginning we doing the jump...he only snipping pictures...so using Achong Huru Hara bike (Haro)...he make the 5 feet gap jump...but the landing was not so good...as he tried to take control back...he bailed out crashing the bike itself...no injuries...but he said got trauma...

Rudy was flying..
